Life at IMD
Spend a year on a campus located in one of the most beautiful and central areas in Europe. Just a stone throw away from Lake Geneva, with a view over the Swiss mountains, Lausanne offers an abundance of cultural and sports activities. The region is one of the globe’s fastest growing science and technology hubs and is home to global blue chip companies with close links to international institutions.
All IMD programs and services focus on real-world challenges faced by executives. We attract outstanding faculty who combine thought leadership and practical experience. You will benefit from a unique global experience which combines intense learning, new challenges and leadership experientials with global executive networking, a personalized approach, and quality support.
Extra-curricular activities cater for a variety of interests and offer further opportunities for new experiences. Starting with the traditional January Polar Bear Jump into the Lac Léman, various clusters develop insights into specific topics, a social committee organizes class outings from ski trips to summer barbecues, and sporting events typically include the annual MBA Regatta, regular football matches or the Lausanne 20k marathon.
